3 Tips for Designing in a Small Interior Space

In today’s financial world, times can be tough. It's a tough economy out there. The way this seems to play out the most is when people are led to sell their home and move into something smaller - like an apartment or townhouse. It's about the "D" word: Downsizing.

These changes can be very difficult to adjust to, but with proper planning and interior design, you can create a cozy and stylish living space that will help you overcome the challenges that downsizing can present.

Tiny Size Technology
Today’s technology can work wonders in helping you downsize. Gaming onsoles and gadgetscan double as home entertainment system by playing movies (either streaming or DVD/Blu-ray) and music from a variety of services. Small and portable tablets like the popular iPad can replace bulky desktop computers, which often require their own desk or “area” in order to use.

Small Space Accents
Positioning of home decorating accents like curtains and doors can make a smaller space feel much larger and bright than it really is.  Floor-to-ceiling doors can give the appearance of tall ceilings. Long curtains that drape to the ground can create a longer wall space which opens up many more options to display with artwork or family photos or memorabilia.

Shared Spaces 
Do you really entertain often? Do you have guests all the time - ? If people aren’t coming over and staying as often as you had hoped - it might be time to drop the guest bedroom and opt for a pull out sofa instead. If you don’t have room for a desk, plan accordingly and opt for some gadgets to make that aspect of your life more portable.
